The Retreat

- meaning of Symbolon card and archetype -

loss of the ego, contemplation, insignificance, existential crisis, meditation
Interpretation of the card:
The image depicts a Buddha, similar to a king (the EGO), sitting on a small throne, with a crown of light around his head. The world around him is missing, surrounded by emptiness. There's nothing you can control, act on, or change. With closed eyes, he looks inward into a world far greater than the EGO's.

The meaning of the Retreat Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card The problem
At this moment, you must step down from the stage as you have nothing further to do. Your world is desolate, lacking in color, and gray, with no one to blame, not even yourself. Don't search for reasons for this, it simply is what it is at present. You are not assuming any role (in both senses of the word) at this moment. Try to accept this.
2) As the next cardWay through the problem
Don't worry, you're in No Man's Land at this moment. You're not the one steering your boat, but rather sitting on a raft with the shore far away. So, just relax and let yourself be carried along. This is a time for you to learn that there are forces controlling your destiny. Don't try to interfere, it will only confuse you. Learn to let things go and act through "non-action."
3) as the last cardResult
As a result, you will learn that the solution can always be found within you, not in the external world, through action. Now, you will also understand the meaning of closing your eyes to the external world and opening them to look inward. You will take a major step forward in your development, which will diminish your ego but expand your existence. .
